We are proud to present a series of four spectacular performances by “Luciano & Friends Live and Unplugged” (3rd to 6th September 2018). The Grammy-Nominated Reggae Superstar Luciano aka “The Messenjah” is a prolific songwriter, accomplished musician, outstanding baritone singer and a bearer of an authentic style of reggae which is consistently praised for imparting sentiments of spiritual salvation. Luciano’s 1997 album Messenger – voted amongst 30 Greatest Reggae Albums of All Time by Mojo magazine – was praised for “turning its back on smutty ‘slackness’ for an album of elevated soul-reggae balminess”.
Luciano’s residency coincides with the long awaited May 2018 release of the new title song and eponymous album ‘In The Name Of Love’. The new album is released on Mountain Peak Records, a new label recently launched by Luciano and his manager/producer, Anthony Cargill. The essence of Luciano’s inimitable talent shines vividly through each track, which also represents some of his very best work to date.
Luciano and friends will be live and unplugged performing his greatest hits and some of his favourite songs including ‘Knocking on Heaven’s Door’, ‘Billie Jean’, ‘Imagine’, ‘Redemption Song’, and ‘What’s Going On’.
The performance times are 9.15pm – 10.15pm Tuesdays – Thursdays; 9.45pm – 10:45pm Fridays and Saturdays
